4 Non-Discrimination and Hazing No clubs will haze or discriminate All campus organizations and College-sponsored events are open to the full participation of all members of the Colby community without regard to race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, age, parental or marital status, national or ethnic origin, political beliefs, or disability unrelated to job or course of study requirements. In addition members of this club will not take part in any form of hazing in agreement with Maine State Law 26-A, MSRA Section The law defines hazing as … any action or situation which recklessly endangers the mental or physical health of a student enrolled at an institution in this State. At Colby, hazing is further defined as any action taken or situation created, whether on or off campus, to produce mental or physical discomfort, embarrassment, harassment, or ridicule. The College takes a very strong stance against hazing in any form. Penalties for those who engage in hazing may include, but not be limited to, suspension or expulsion for individuals and the disbanding of violating organizations. At Colby, hazing activities and situations include, but are not limited to: any physical act of violence expected of, or inflicted upon, another; creating excessive fatigue or sleep deprivation; any physical activity expected of, or inflicted upon, another; pressure or coercion of another to consume any legal or illegal substance; making available unlawful substances; kidnapping, quests, road trips, and/or abandonment; engaging in public stunts, humiliating or degrading games or activities; servitude (expecting a new member to do the tasks of an experienced member); costuming and alteration of appearance; line-ups and/or berating; coerced lewd conduct; interference with academic activities; and any such activities that are not consistent with regulations and policies of the College or of civil law. No student may waive protection against hazing (e.g. by consenting to the behavior or activity). Any organization that violates these rules shall lose all rights to conduct any activities or to receive any other benefit of affiliation with the College. Any student or any member of an organization found guilty of hazing will be subject to suspension or expulsion as well as possible civil or criminal prosecution.
